Based on Kurt Bennett's popular-ish blog God Running, Love Like Jesus begins with the story of how after a life of
regular church attendance and Bible study, Bennett was challenged by a pastor to study Jesus. That led to an
obsessive seven-year deep dive. After pouring over Jesus' every interaction with another human being, he realized
he was doing a much better job of studying Jesus' words than he was following Jesus' words and example. The
honest and fearless revelations of Bennett's own moral failures affirm he wrote this book for himself as much as
Love Like Jesus examines a variety of stories, examples, and research, including:
-Specific examples of how Jesus communicated God's love to others.
-How Jesus demonstrated all five of Gary Chapman's love languages (and how you can too).
-The story of how Billy Graham extended Christ's extraordinary love and grace toward a man who
misrepresented Jesus to millions.
-How to respond to critics the way Jesus did.
-How to love unlovable people the way Jesus did.
-How to survive a life of loving like Jesus (or how not to become a Christian doormat).
-How Jesus didn't love everyone the same (and why you shouldn't either).
-How Jesus guarded his heart by taking care of himself--he even napped--and why you should do the same.
-How Jesus loved his betrayer Judas, even to the very end.
With genuine unfiltered honesty, Love Like Jesus shows you how to live a life according to God's definition of
success: A life of loving God well, and loving the people around you well too.
A life of loving like Jesus.
